Take Action Now
If you have water damage from flooding, a burst pipe, backed up sewer line, or overflowed sink, it is vital that you take action immediately to minimize the damages. Water can lead to mold growth, rotting wood, rusted metal, peeling paint, and extensive discoloration and warping of building materials.
Look Out For Leaks
Keep an eye out for damage to the pipes under the sink or the water lines leading to the washing machine. Pay attention to any dampness of the wood or cabinetry under the sink, as well as moisture gathered on the pipe itself. The water lines for the washing machine or dishwasher are also at risk of becoming cracked or otherwise damaged. Monitor these water lines so you can be proactive in responding to any damage to the pipes. If you discover a leak after water damage has already occurred, take action immediately.
